Spring Rituals – Exhibition Catalogue
Thank you to everyone who came over to Rosedale for our Private View of Spring Rituals.
Decorated eggs have long been a potent cross-cultural symbol of new beginnings and springs return.
This new collection of pieces are principally inspired by the eggs of the now extinct Elephant Bird.
These works explore the patterns made by the reassembly of these fossilised giant eggs.
The fragmented patterns are universal in their structure, like cracked dry earth and the breaking ice sheets.
The form of the egg and these patterns remind us of the eggs function as a protector of new life and its inherent fragility.
You can see the online exhibition catalogue here and read the full statement about the work. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate.
‘Spring Rituals’ – Studio Exhibition March 26-22 April
New pieces in cameo-engraved glass.
Decorated eggs have long been made for spring rituals as a potent cross-cultural symbol of new beginnings.

Exhibition – A Portrait of Place
“A Portrait of Place”
Barnard Castle & Teesdale in contemporary cameo glass.
February 10 – 13 May 2018 The Bowes Museum
The Landscape of Teesdale has long been an inspiration to artists including the water colours of John Sell Cotman & J.M.W.Turner.
Our exploration and ‘Portrait’ of Teesdale uses a different perspective, digital satellite imaging.
This enables a new view of the landscape, revealing the geology, rivers systems and layers of human endeavour, carved into the land and overlaid for millennia.
We engrave layers of marks into the glass, blurring the boundary between abstraction and a literal interpretation.
Just as changing light illuminates the landscape, light is integral to our work, animating our glass, revealing layers of colours and engraving.
Our subtly distorted bowl forms, represent the soft curves and hollows of the land. The gentle forms and complex engraved surfaces of every vessel ensures each piece is a unique object.
Manmade marks constructed, burned and worked into the land, have their own beauty and rhythm. Winter colours highlight the cold depth of the water and the stark staccato patterns of the burned uplands.

A Portrait of Place – Exhibition – Bowes Museum
A portrait of the Barnard Castle & Teesdale in contemporary cameo glass.
A series of our pushed bowl forms, with colours moving through the seasons, exploring the landscape around Teesdale the Bowes Museum.
This beautiful Landscape has been an inspiration to artists including the famous poem Rokeby by Walter Scott which celebrates Teesdale and many watercolorists have chosen to paint this landscape, including John Sell Cotman & J.M.W.Turner.
Our exploration and Portrait of this landscape will use a perspective that has only recently become available. Using digital satellite technology, enabling an over view of the landscape, revealing the geology and the marks carved into the land of Teesdale by natures hand and the active management of men and women over millennia.
The title ‘Portrait of Place’, makes reference to the English Water Colour Tradition, a time before watercolorists were appreciated as artists, a time when their role was purely functional, recorders of the world around them.
